3 days of lifting
2 days of rock climbing
I've been down this injured achilles road before, so I decided to shut things down and to continue lifting weights instead. I hate running sporadically, with all decisions to go on a run dependent on how my achilles is feeling. I would rather take time off than to juggle the conflicting emotional decision making. And so with that, I lifted a bunch, went on several walks and went rock climbing. There has been a ton of rain, so I have avoided sloshing through puddles at least!
I did get some answers from Jenna, as well as a PT at San Francisco Cross Fit. Seems that most of my underlying issues are stemming from the same source as last year's injury - tight calves, tight lats and an overactive back. I've been working on corrective exercises to remedy this issue.
